Everyone is looking to make a quick buck, especially 2.25 million of them. This story will also likely cause several of you to start diving into your card collections.

A rookie card for Tom Brady just sold at action for $2.25 million according to ESPN. In March the same card sold for $1.32 million and it held the record until this recent sale.

The card in question is a 2000 Payoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket card. It was also autographed by Brady. The cards have a serial number of #99 out of #100. This recent card had an 8.5 grade and the autograph was graded a 9.

Tom Brady is now with Tampa Bay, but he’s injured. It’s unknown if he will even make preseason workouts, because some have theorized that his knee injury, which required surgery, is worse than they’re letting on. He recently signed a high-dollar one-year extension on his contract with the Buccaneers as well.

The Tom Brady rookie card’s buyer is anonymous. We have no idea where that card is going, but the new owner paid a ton for it.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
